2235: Well done Ken, you did the right thing. After all, you don't want to miss the piece de resistance at the end - the lighting of the cauldron and the Queen declaring the Games of the XXX Olympiad officially open. We've just had Bermuda - all eight of their athletes wearing Bermuda shorts, clearly.
2250: Good question. The copper petals being carried by a child leading each delegation have that country's name inscribed and they will all have a role in the ceremony later. So now you really can't go anywhere, otherwise you'll never find out.
2257: And the countries just keep on rolling into the Olympic Stadium in London. Djibouti, Egypt, Equatorial Guinea, Ethiopia, Gabon, Gambia...
Germany’s Natascha Keller (Field Hockey)
I’m almost certain that of all the flag-bearers on show in London this evening, none will have more Olympic experience in their family than Germany’s hockey heroine Keller. She is taking part in her fifth Games and won gold in 2004 in Athens, her grandfather Erwin won silver in 1936 in Berlin, her dad Carsten won gold in 1972 in Munich, older brother Andreas won two silvers in 1984 and 1988 and then a gold in 1992 in Barcelona, and younger brother Florian won gold in 2008 in Beijing. Wonder what they talk about at a Keller family Christmas…
2304: Haha. I love trying to explain cricket to people. It usually takes 10 minutes and ends with: "Look, you're just gonna have to watch it and pick it up as you go along." Ooh look, here's Ireland...
Ireland’s Katie Taylor (Boxing)
Not only does flag-bearer Taylor get her Games chance with women’s boxing finally allowed into the Olympics, but she is the shortest odds of any athlete in any sport to win gold in London. Why? Because she has won four successive World Amateur titles and five European Amateur titles at 60kg and has been world number one for an astonishing 69 months. The nearest thing London 2012 has to unbeatable.
2308: And here comes the most famous athlete on Planet Earth - Usain St. Leo Bolt, the fastest man who ever walked this beautiful old world of ours. You'll be astonished to hear he looks like he's having quite a good time. That man partied bang in the middle of the shortest sporting event of all time, so it's no wonder.
2313: Libiya, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg... still they keep on coming. We're at 110 countries out of 204 so far - getting closer to the lighting of the Olympic flame. We still don't know who it'll be, mind. My money's on Sir Steven Redgrave, but I've rarely been right before.
2318: With you there, Harry. It's definitely possible that a lot of people outside Britain will not have understood large parts of that Opening Ceremony. But the reaction from Brits so far has been electric, with some even saying director Danny Boyle should be knighted.
2319: Anyway, who's going to light the flame?
2323: Yes Yorkie - that's the one I want. Right, here goes...
Dear Danny Boyle,
You have made us all very proud Brits tonight. Please can you get Prince William to head in a David Beckham free-kick to light the flame and we can all go home happy?
Horia Tecau, Romania (Tennis)
“My family rang me to say that it was official and it’s going to be me. I was in shock. I said yes right away, and it was an honour even to be asked but I never thought it would actually be me. All I can think about is how incredibly emotional the experience is going to be, and how nervous I will be.”
2330: You did just fine, Horia. Beautiful flag-bearing, if I do say so myself. Another tennis player follows on behind, with Maria Sharapova carrying the Russian flag. She said she "had to read the text message five times and read it to other people to make sure I got it correct" when she was asked. Aww.
Novak Djokovic, Serbia (Tennis)
“The Olympic Games is the pinnacle of all sports. It is very emotional because it is not just you who matters there, it’s the whole nation.”
2347: We're getting very close to Team GB and the lighting of the Olympic flame now... Tunisia... Turkey... Turkmenistan... Tuvalu... Uganda... Ukraine... United Arab Emirates...
Mariel Zagunis, USA (Fencing)
“As an athlete, I can't imagine a higher honour than to lead Team USA into the Olympic Games, which are the pinnacle of sport and a platform for world peace. I am tremendously proud to represent my sport, our team and, most importantly, the United States of America."
2354: Kids are the future, Becky - we've just about had our time to shine. The way London 2012 - since the day they started planning the bid - has embraced the youth of the nation gives you so much hope in the future. That, more than anything, has been the genius of Lord Coe's masterplan.
2356: And here come Team GB, with triple gold medal-winning cyclist Sir Chris Hoy carrying the flag of the United Kingdom, David Bowie's 'Heroes' blasting out and a tickertape entrance welcoming them into the Olympic Stadium. About half the 541-strong squad are present, and they will remember this for the rest of their lives.
